Henry Cavill has played countless memorable characters in film and television – and one of them was the iconic Superman in the DC Universe.
While there is no future project around the superhero, Cavill has already expressed his desire to reprise the role on several occasions, the most recent being during an interview with British talk show Lorraine.
The star said he’s just waiting for the studio to call about the character’s perspective.
“I still have the costume … just in case [me chamarem]”, he commented.” Yes, I am ready and I am waiting for the call.

In another interview, this time with The Hollywood Reporter, Cavill said there is still a lot to do with the character in the movies:
“There is still a lot to do with Superman, and I would love this opportunity,” he said. “Zod’s death gave the character a reason to never kill again. Superman falling to the ground and screaming right after – I don’t think it was in the original script, but I wanted to show the pain he was feeling. J made a lot of other emotional sequels that they didn’t choose; tears flowed freely. He killed the last remaining member of their species. It was the choice he made then and he never will. There is an opportunity to mature after that, to explore Superman’s psyche as an almost divine and seemingly invulnerable being, but with real feelings inside. As I always say: ‘the blanket is still in the closet’ ”.
